About Farm Day

What is Farm Day?

A day full of free agricultural tours and activities hosted at over 20 different farms, ranches, and agricultural organizations across Ventura County. The tours are self-guided. You travel in your own car, at your own pace, visiting the locations most exciting and intriguing to you.

Tours are held between 10 am and 3 pm. Farm Day is all about having fun, exploring the community food system, and learning about Ventura County’s rich agricultural heritage.

How It All Began

The first Farm Day was held in Ventura County in the Fall of 2013 and featured a variety of growers, ranches, and agricultural organizations. It has since grown into a community-wide event, now hosted in two counties, with over 30 participating locations, and more than 6,000 visitors each year!

Farm Day is proudly presented by SEEAG, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that educates students and the greater community about the farm origins of our food and agriculture's contribution to our nutritional well-being.
